I'm a photographer and visual artist focused on environmental and social justice work. In 2015, I shot a street photography project for the Environmental Defense Fund called Earth Street. Contact me with artistic inquiries at [email protected]

I am also passionate about creating corporate social responsibility (CSR) and community-building strategies. Experienced in sustainable business consulting and marketing, I've spent a decade building mission-driven brands, strategies, and campaigns. 

Currently I serve as committee member of the Durham Art Guild, and was a founding board member of OUT for Sustainability (founded by ELP Senior Fellow Gerod Rody). I earned an MBA in Sustainable Enterprise and Consulting from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School in 2009, and an AB in English and Women's Studies from Duke University in 2001.
